We lost approximately a zillion hours of sleep because the excitement was just too much.
(after an hour of being in bed)
9:30pm MOM IT IS SNOWING COME LOOK
10pm MOM WE ARE LAYING ON THE FLOOR WAITING FOR THE SNOW. IS IT TIME YET?!
2am send kids back to bed, not time yet
3am send kids back to bed, not time yet
4am- oldest is officially up and there isn't much hope she will sleep from here on out
5am- middle child is officially up, parents pretend to be asleep, but really we are just postponing the inevitable
7am- MOM AND DAD GET UP! IT IS MORNING! COME SEE THE SNOW!
Lincoln lasted 4 minutes in the snow and thought it was awesome until he sat in it.
Naomi lasted 8 minutes and thought it was awesome until she took her gloves off and decided to touch it with her BARE hands.
Audrey wanted to stay out forever, but had to go inside with the rest of the crew.
And naturally we had to have homemade hot chocolate with whipped cream and sprinkles.
So, a zillion hours of lost sleep was totally worth the less than 10 minutes in the snow.
Because this, this is childhood.
